International Day of Prayer and Reflection Against Human Trafficking

dagmarMoMOct1Medical Mission Sisters join many others around the world in marking the first-ever “International Day of Prayer and Reflection against Human Trafficking.”  To be held February 8, it has been set by Pope Francis as a day to mobilize attention, reflection and action on a growing evil in our world.  A number of our Sisters are actively involved in raising awareness of and responding to the needs of those who are among the 36 million persons being trafficked today.  Among them is Sister Dagmar Plum, pictured here, with individuals in Europe who have fled trafficking situations.
